OWINGS MILLS, Md. ‚?? Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs doesn‚??t intend to let a torn right biceps keep him out of Sunday‚??s game against the Washington Redskins.
‚??We kind of live by the creed of, if you can breathe then you can play,‚?Ě Suggs said Wednesday. ‚??We just got to check it out. We got to see how it holds up throughout the week. (It will) definitely be a game-time decision on Sunday.‚?Ě
The injury occurred last weekend in the fourth quarter of a 23-20 loss to Pittsburgh.
Another injured Ravens linebacker, Ray Lewis, returned to practice Wednesday ‚?? the next stage of the 37-year-old‚??s attempt to come back from a tore right triceps. Lewis was hurt Oct. 14 against Dallas and placed on injured reserve, designated for return.
‚??I‚??m making progress and will practice some today,‚?Ě Lewis said in a statement. ‚??But the story shouldn‚??t be about me right now. We‚??re playing the Redskins Sunday, and I am not eligible to play. If I can help prepare my team in some way for that game, I will. When I know I will play in a game, or when I play in a game, I will say more then.‚?Ě
Suggs, on the other hand, will be on the field for the Ravens (9-3) against the surging Redskins (6-6) if his ailing right arm won‚??t hinder his effectiveness.
